I ask him prior to the season if he needed some help and he shut me down... Oh well... I wouldn't offer my neighbors they're a$$**les!

Anyway...Still striving to get something decent...I'm working security (if you wanna call it that) standing in a parkinglot doing nothing for 4 hours a day...2 weeks $130...WOW I'm going to get rich there!
Hey don't feel bad...My brother got laid off from a 18.50 an hour job. He was laid off for 7 months before he got the job he has now that pays 9.40 an hour. He had his new car and new Harley Davidson repossed. He is stocking shelves at a grocery store. Here's the true kick in the pants...The only way he got the job ???? His ex-wife's new fiance' got him in there....What a shot to the manhood!!!! Life sux sometimes...You just have to surround yourself with the ones that love you and hope for the best!!!!!!!

Keep trying him... Check with some of these real estate companies in the area and find out who's doing their vacant yards... I've seen 4 or 5 young guys working on a couple vacant yards around here. I'm pretty sure (99.99%) that they're not working for any company. They're using old standard push mowers and the old wheel edge trimmers for the walks.

I know Kettering is citing real estate companys for not keeping the yards up. I'm not sure about the others but hey it's a shot! Let me know what you come up with!
